About Our Site

DrivewayExpert was formed to offer a unique reference point on creating or replacing a driveway or patio.

There are a thousand different ways of making a hard surface for cars and DrivewayExpert has details on all of them. Whether you're paving your front garden to get your car off the road or resurfacing a three mile drive to your palatial country mansion you'll find all the information you require on this website.

We start with the planning permission issues and talk about the various different surfaces that can be selected. Then we go into more detail on the pros and cons of each type of drive and teach you enough to be able to ask the right questions of any professionals you consider for the job, if you're not doing it yourself.

Not only do we cover the various hard and loose driveway surfaces but we also feature more environmentally sound surfaces that allow water to run back to the water table and provide a micro-climate for insects and other small animal. In this newly environmentally conscious age we have it all covered.

Then, as the techniques employed can be very similar, we have articles on garden paving, paths, patios and children's play areas.

Because we have no association with any manufacturers or shops you can rest assured that our expert opinion is simply that - expert opinion with no subtle attempts to drive you towards any particular products.

Our concern was that there was no single UK resource for interesting features and practical advice on this subject.

Our features and articles are written by experts - who have experience, or a particular interest in this area.

Our Background

DrivewayExpert was founded by John Rowlinson, the founder of PtS.

John, through PtS, is involved in a number of ventures including software and property companies. A percentage of revenue from these activities goes towards funding DrivewayExpert and a number of similar sites.
